This page shares findings from different phases of our mixed-methods study.
This report presents findings from two online surveys of undergraduate students at UBC about their term-time work in 2018 and 2019. This was the first phase of the Hard Working Student study. We found that more than half (55%) of the respondents worked during the first semester of 2018, and a slightly greater proportion (57%) worked during the first semester of 2019. Students worked an average of 14.3 hours per week in 2018 and 16 hours in 2019.
